Wonderful Homestead

We came specifically to Junee for the Monte Cristo, both being fans of a good scare! We were greeted by Olive Ryan (caretaker of the homestead), and she gave a brief description... read more

We were greeted by Olive Ryan (caretaker of the homestead), and she gave a brief description of the history of the home, including showing us the entrance area (which is covered in photos and articles), showing us the work her husband had to put...

Closed on the day I visited (closed much of the week) so I decided I’d like to get a glimpse from a distance. I drove around the neighborhood and couldn’t see it. I got out and walked around, still it eluded me. There was always something blocking my view, almost as if it didn’t want me to look. Brrr.

Have been before but decided to bring the kids in and try to gain some interest in the ghost world - little bit of fun and history for them. Lovely lady who lives there- gave us a discount and the kids some freebies- how nice 👍

Well worth a visit if you love to see how a couple has really restored a lovely old property to its original state. Lots to see and all very interesting.

We were fortunate to go on a day that the owner of the homestead was there and gave us a great insight into the history of the property. Great to see it has been restored and done so tastefully.

The homestead is beautiful and the family have done an amazing job of putting all back to its glory. Seeing the rooms how they would have been with all the appropriate fixtures was great. Reading the spooky stories also made for a great tour. Would have loved to have seen the ballroom done up. The gentleman in the shop was... More

The stories the deaths and the exquisite antique furnishings in the rooms. You can smell the history of the place and it is just creepy and I wouldn't want to spend the night. A good place to give yourself a bit of a scare and test whether or not you believe in ghosts.

The actual homestead is beautiful. Though we did not enter the home to visit inside we went into the visitors store to get a look at the various items. A tour of the homestead is $125pp for I believe a dinner and tour. An overnight stay with dinner and tour I believe was $200 upwards. I could not justify that... More

We called and booked over the phone, I transferred the full amount by DD as they only take cash, cheque or money order. I called and left a message to confirm my payment was received... no response until few days prior when Sophia called to see if we were still coming as they haven't seen any funds come through... when...
